Life on an 1857 Farm in Wisconsin.
Until right now, I guess I hadn't really noticed that I seem to be picking up little brightly colored plastic scoops and measuring spoons lately. The little coffee scoops in Red and Yellow in particular. They fit so nice inside my other favorite... glass jars. Never seem to have enough glass jars and they store just about anything. And bowls, always drawn to bowls. Stoneware, Texasware, doesn't matter. Love them all, big or small.
Silver. Silverware, serving pieces, jewelry. It can be so divinely ornate, and coordinates with both elegant and casual, how ever you need it to function. Each piece has a history, if only they could talk and tell their story. And there's always my old standby - iron. Big, clunky, heavy, and hard to transport. But I always have a will, so there's a way....
Wooden bowls, especially if they are rosemaled, and tole painted trays. Almost have "enough" of these though. Wondering what will be next......Jani
Those tins are absolutely WONDERFUL!! So quaint. They just tug at your heart!
Just love to hear about what others collect...it is one of my favorite parts about working at the Hixton School House Antique Mall a couple of days a month.Today I was out on a buying trip allllllll day. And, picked up the signs for the Barn Sale - they are fabulous...painted by the same person who did our farm sign.Kari
Om my gosh, I so love the bluebird tins...I have been to the Hixton Antique Mall (on our way to Minneapolis where our daughters live). I'm pretty sure that I have shopped in your very booth..We might like the same kinda things... would love to meet you at The Junk Bonanza.. it's going to be a grand ole time...
I so l-o-v-e the bluebird tins! We stop at the Hixton Antique Mall on out way to Minneapolis to visit our daughters... great place to spend the afternoon, but it can certainly make out 12 hr trip alot longer... I do believe I have shopped in your booth.. Would love to meet up at the Junk Bonanza.. it's such a fun show. I've only shopped it.. so this will be new for me...
As a lover of all things tea cup - may I say that those were the most precious cups I have seen? You have such a talented eye!
